GALLERI ÖRSTA



Welcome to autumn's first exhibition at Gallery Örsta, Kumla, September 10 at. 12:00
Exhibition period: September 10 to October 9
JENS FÄNGE (painting)
JOHANNA KARLSSON (drawing / sculpture)
MIKAEL OLSSON (photography)

We are proud to be able to show an exhibition of new and older works by Jens Fänge, Johanna Karlsson and Mikael Olsson. Three prominent artists who work in different ways with precise images of the interior and exterior spatial units in architecture and nature.

Jens Fänge scenic painting plays dreamy findings from an ongoing densified drama. Spatial shapes and patterns details migrates between shots, connecting his painterly objectivity with an in-depth description of a specific but severe localized spot.
Johanna Karlsson's drawings and sculptures representing insects and tree logs. She depicts slice of nature with an almost scientific precision. With an impressive touch and a consistent fantasy force, she shows up a material that seems to be one of his motives.
Mikael Olsson shows photographs from the suite Södrakull Frösakull. A sort of documentary stagings from two houses that were designed and inhabited by architect and furniture designer Bruno Mathsson. Olsson's photographs are saturated with an affectionate colored lights and with a detail which in a mysterious way, combining presence and absence.

The exhibition is displayed in the New Gallery - our beautiful gallery that is 356 m2 and designed by architects Claesson Koivisto Rune. The gallery was opened in October 2010.

MOMENTUM DESIGN AT MOMENTUM KUNSTHALL



Exhibition at MomentumDesign - Design, art and the space in between.

MomentumDesign discusses the relationship; design versus visual art, and focuses on the concept by presenting work that can be placed in an intersection between art and design. The definition of design has changed simultaneously as the concept of art has taken a new direction, and the exhibition examines the allegation that designers and visual artists are approaching each other’s fields and strategies, and how and why this is taking place.

Curators: Guro Dyvesveen, Maria Havstam og Siv Hofsvang
Participants in MomentumDesign: Amy Hunting (NO), Antti Leppanen (FI), Daniel Rybakken (NO), David Garcia studio (DK), David Svensson (SE), Ditte Hammerstrøm (DK), Espen Dietrichson (NO), Frida Fjellman (SE), Fuldesign (SE), Jan-Erik Andersson (FI), Jesper Aabille (DK), Kristine Bjaadal (NO), Michael Johansson (SE), Mikael Olsson (SE), Oscar Magnus Narud (NO), Riiko Sakkinen (FI), Sara Gullman (SE), Maria Sandberg (SE), Cecilia Dreyfert (SE), Unndór Egill Jónsson (IS), Ylva Carlgren (SE), Morten Jacobsen (DK), Tine Semb (NO)
